Digital Homicide might have committed digital suicide after going to war with Valve.
The studio has already taken legal action against video personality Jim Sterling after the Brit heavily criticised many of its titles in his Jimquisition series. Now it has alleged that an organised group formed on the back of this criticism to orchestrate strategic negative reviews in an effort to damage it.
It also alleges that this organised harassment took other forms, such as mass emailing.
Digital Homicide has actually subpoenaed Valve in an effort to obtain the personal details of the users in question – and Valve has reacted by pulling its games entirely, telling Polygon: "Valve has stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam."
